It looks like matchweed to me, and the flowers are purple. Can you check some images of matchweed to see if they match?

Looks like a weedy type of "Purslane" to me. Maybe the uncultivated species of Portulaca umbraticola.

Seeing the bloom would help.

Failures the easy way out, press on
I agree with Hamilton Square that it's Purslane - Portulaca oleracea 'Granatus'
Blessings to you!

Even if you kill off the green growth you still have lots of seeds that have been produced. The flowers come and go so quickly and the seed pods are so small it all happens while your not looking. The green growth has to be stopped and then the seeds need to be prevented from germinating by blocking off all light without which the seeds can't germinate. Difficult to be rid of portulaca if you let it bloom.

Definitely P. amilis.

Why would you want to be rid of it? P. amilis is adorable, putting on a great show for a few months, if you're paying attention between 8 to about 11:30 AM.

But if you do, they pull up easily if the ground is not too dry.

Portulaca oleracea 'Granatus' is P. umbraticola.

This plants is P. umbraticola:
Portulaca oleracea Mojave® Tangerine
